The Scoville Scale

Welcome to the Scoville Scale, the defining list of what’s hot and what’s not on the web. For years we have been in search of the hottest peppers, sauces, and extracts on the planet. We are now working to bring the most complete SHU Scale to our fellow pepper heads around the world. So scroll on down to learn about your favorite heat or click here to learn more about the Scoville Scale and it’s history.

Below you will find the new pepper scale we are working on. It is completely sortable by name and high heat rating. You can also use the search box to filter the results for your favorite peppers. If we are missing anything or if you notice any inaccuracies, please contact us!
